When the electricity went out my instruments were in a very humid and hot environment and 7 of my cello bridges warped. I was able to get the mold off of the bridges and wash the bags but the bridges are in need of replacement. We could use 7 cello bridges please.

(3) 3/4 bridges and (4) full size bridges.

Program Needs

Instruments

My program is in desperate need of cellos. Many of my students rent from the stores usually but this year, a lot of them had damage done to their homes and are unable to continue making payments to the store for an instrument and need to rent our school instruments. I do not have the cellos needed to support the amount of students that are in need of a cello. I would be very grateful for at least 3 more cellos in the 3/4 size or 1/2 size.

Program Needs

Instruments

The demand for cellos & basses for student use exceeds the supply on hand (esp. 3/4 cellos) on my campus. Many of our students are unable to afford rental of these larger instruments through the local music vendors this year. 7 additional 3/4 cellos would greatly assist our program.

Student Needs

Instruments

My school has students affected by Harvey that I am unable to assist with instruments, due to the demand for instruments being greater than the supply available.

1 - 3/4 cello and 1 - 1/4 string bass would enable two of my 2nd-year students to continue participating in the orchestra program.

Thank you for your consideration!

Southmore Intermediate is a part of Pasadena ISD. This district was hit hard by the recent storm. Buildings are being considered for relocation and facilities are currently getting much needed repairs. With all of the costs and attention to facilities and assets, I am afraid that our focus will shift from the arts. The burden of instrument replacement, when an instrument gets too old will be on the shoulders of the individual schools to replace. This will be difficult to bear because so much of our district money will be going to facility maintenance and repair. Our school provides most of the instruments our students need. It is rare that a student will acquire a quality instrument on their own. It is important for a school like Southmore to keep and maintain a good working inventory.
